The popularity of electric vehicles has increased in the past few years for both consumers and racers. Lonestar EV Performance has built an impressive drag Miata capable of reaching into the eight second category. The Miata runs two Netgain Warp9 2000 amp 210 volt electric motors each good for 500 horsepower. The instant torque electric motors naturally have gets this Miata 0-60mph in 1.5 seconds.
Here are just a few of the records Lonestar currently has as of this posting.
